TEAM NEWS: Kivasia back for Kabras clash

Stanbic Mwamba has announced the squad to take on Kabras Sugar RFC in the second Kenya Cup match set for Railway Club on Saturday afternoon.

Jonah Mbari gets a starting berth with Eugene Sudi unavailable this weekend. In the other changes, Felix Otieno drops to the bench with Idris Sharrif coming into the matchday 23 as Meshack Obota misses out.

On positional changes, last week’s number eight Gideon Mbithi switches position with Tony Owuor, George Omolla takes David Oluoch place on the openside flank. Jeremy Chimwani moves from open wing to blind wing. Joel Inzuga moves from outside centre to open wing with Sabala Tendwa switching from inside to outside centre.

Skipper Michael Agevi switches from full-back to inside centre paving way for Brian Kivasia, making his first Kenya Cup start since sustaining knee injury almost a year ago.

Among the finishers, Thomas Soteri, Alfred Yuko and Venanzio Nganga are the front-row replacements with Oluoch and utility Mike Okello joining them. Eugene Nzioka, Felix Otieno and Shariff complete the roster.
